Hellllloooo! I love the hands they are great big achievements there, simple but accurate line work great job. And I love the hand man doodle its very cool. Well back to school hey, I don't miss school at all it was gay for me. College is the bomb... ha ha seriously, school down-under (australia) sucks ass. Keep going at your studies, they are better than ever.
Haha that doodle with the guy with a hand for a head is great haha. You're coming on great nibras, don't ever go stopping on me. I'm too tired to be helpful right now so you'll have to settle for asspattery.
haha please dont get mad for calling you that.. i tend to nickname people around here..
anyways great improvement girl! one thing you could work on is straighter lines try making one line instead of ten here ill show you an example..
lol dont ask why it had to be an apple
hope that dumb visualization helped!
thanks for stopping by my sb! got some new goodies in there if ya wanna check them out!
I agree with Algen. Big improvement with that post. Your hands are getting better as well as your torsos and figures. Even the lines in the last post ar more confident. Only thing I can say is keep doing what your doing.
Doing pages of hand studies is for the toughest. You should be proud of yourself . The proportion in those figures look really good. Maybe try putting more variety into line thickness. Some lines can be left really thin, loose and delicate while other more sharp and thick. Look for some drawings done by old masters to see how they use that to show form.
I second Reject-D about using one line instead of many (I answered something similar to the question you wrote on my SB not too long ago). You could start with a hard lead (F, for example) for gesturing and initial studies and once the best silhouette and pose is defined, use a soft one like HB or B to go over those lines. If you're not using pencils but a tablet, then use the opacity and other settings of the brush to get the same effect. It takes practice but since you're a motivated hard worker, no problem, right?
Take care girl,
There's no way I can look at that last update and not post! Amazing improvement, they man with a hand for a head looks so great, everything right down the the rythm of the drawing.
I think personally you have improved in leaps and bounds, Keep it up!

I was banned from my pc got in trouble and got banned, then the life routine started going all crazy and things started to happen * like it has been these past months*.
ANd school has been kicking my sooooooooo hard tests are coming up
Thats just excuses though no matter how much i wanna hang on to them i still know their just excuses......
I drew some and slacked some... am very very dissapointed at my self for the slacking part, i set my self deadlines and their coming tight so i cant be slacking... i hate bieng lazy because out of my 7 months of art i have wasted atleast 3 or 4 months of just time waste so i wanna pay it all up and just bust more and more.
Now that am alloweed on my computer the daily updates will continue
and i need to start doing more imaginative work my observation skills are growing but imagination not so much .
I went to an art workshop it was fun but not too much of my type of thing, i tried out markers, coloured pencils, watercolours and paint
I done more landscapes, interior design, master studies, life drawing and just trying different things.
On the negative side my anatomy seemed to be going down and my drawings of people are going down so i need to do tons more of these;
Just also to let you all know *because i want to* am fasting since it's ramadan and am a muslim, So the fast this year is from 3am in the morning till 8:15pm hahaha god it's meant to be tiering and all but it just makes me hyper.
Updating some of my fav stuff from the past week or so....

This was also done in the workshop, i used one of them knife thingies to scrap out a shape..... and then a layer of ink was on top:
Then it was turned into a print:

Hey hey hey! Good stuff,but. Yeah, the but again, I know, I nag too much. Anywayz, You should do rendering more, cuz I see that you keep that at a limit. Also try to do more studies from life. I wanna see more real people in ur studies! Lol, I also did those linocuts. I cut my fingers a lot!
Your lines are improving and now I wanna see some more rendering and digitals. Keep at it.
Hey, some nice stuff up there. i can see u tried improving ur line quality but make sure you don´t loose ur detail. It seems that some of them miss the detail and are a lil to empty. Also when doing hands do draw the fingers . I know it's timetaking but it sure is worth it. Talk to you later. Byee
Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Brilliant update.I see great progress.The character is well developed with understanding in how equipment wrap around the character .Damn nice thumbnails and other studies.Ok little girl now you change level soon if you keep working with passion.
I will be here to check!!!

Some character wip really quick:
Hey, great to see you updating again. You've improved loaaaaaaaads!
It can be seen, most of all in those chracter and knife thumbs. Kick ass lines!
mmm, those anatomy studies and mini character silhouettes are looking geeewd.
your sb is like a testament to the fact that this website builds artists.
keep up the good work, yo.
Name's Todd. I'd encourage you to check out my sketchbook, but it's full of shit, natch.
can see you are improving allot, the silos are pretty cool I cant even do silos from memory like that. definately improved on hands allot, notice page 1 vs page 7.. Good job, always nice to see an artists evolution on here this site is really cool. Keep up the good work.
I must agree with the people before me, lots and lots of improvement. How big is the paper you work on? Have you tried bigger size paper?
I think it helps to work big, it's hard and awkward at first but it taught me to fill the page. Your sketches look small, that's why I mention it, but for all I know your using 5 foot by 6 foot paper. Do they even make that size?
Keep up the good work.
Yes it will surely pay off.All your hard work in your age, and this progress rate, is just great.I already see a lot of improvement and all the thumbnails are creative and well made.Just keep up walking in the right path lil
hey lilnebo, you've really improved, but now i think it's time for you to improve your line quality, so do more life drawing, blind contours, rendering, straight lines, maybe you can try some posemaniacs at 90 sec for the beginning. I'm looking forward to see your improvement, and I know how it could be difficult to be concentrate during the fast( I'm fasting too) , but keep up good work and be motivated ( lol i really need to start a sb )
